Course Description

This two-day course is designed to help you prepare for and pass the national pediatric nurse practitioner certification examination. The review will cover major theories of growth and development, diagnosis, treatment modalities, interventions of common pediatric illnesses and more. A pre-test exam will be emailed to participants two weeks before the course. The schedule has been developed to align with the Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner-Primary Care (CPNP-PC) Exam Essential: Content Outline, focusing on clinical problems that appear at the top of the prioritized listing. Participants will have access to listen to pre-recorded lectures on genetics, immunology, hematology, endocrinology and health policy after the course. Participants consistently report that practice exam questions are the most important part of the review course, so each lecture has been designed with practice questions to help you analyze your strengths and weaknesses. An organized approach will improve retention and recall, while integrating test-taking strategies to help you succeed.

Presented by: Teresa Whited, DNP, APRN, CPNP-PC; Deena Garner, DNP, APRN, CPNP-PC; Albrey Berber, DNP, APRN, CPNP-PC and Sharon Stevenson, DNP, APRN, PPCNP-BC   

CE: 15.0 contact hours

The review course is 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day with breakfast provided. Lunch is on your own.
